Practical Sailor reviewed the boat a while back (not sure the date, it's in their Boat Buying
Book): "We hate to sound mush headed, but there is simply little to crticize in the Mason 33. It is true that some people may not like the full keel
design of the boat, preferring a lighter, high performance hull
. But given the design, there is hardly anything wrong." That coming from Practical Sailor speaks volumes!!
